Biatain - Alginate


Recommended for cavity filling
The design and the structural integrity of the dressing allow you to cut the dressing and make it fit to wounds of many sizes, shapes and depths. The dressing will conform to the wound bed which is important for the wound healing process.
High dressing integrity
The high dressing integrity allows for one-piece removal of the dressing with minimal pain and trauma .
Minimised risk of leakage and maceration
The superior absorption of Biatain® Alginate and the gel formation, which locks the exudate inside the dressing, prevent leakage that can damage the periwound skin.
Documented haemostatic effect
Contrary to hydrofibre dressings, Biatain® Alginate has documented haemostatic effect, i.e. ability to arrest blood flow in minor bleedings due to the release of calcium ions from the dressing.

On contact with wound exudate Biatain® Alginate converts to a soft, cohesive gel that provides an optimal moist wound healing environment .
Product composition
